Washington. Secretary of Interior
Harold IcKes last Thursday announ
ced two portions of trie roule for the
tcenic parkway which has been
authorized lor construction from pub
lic works funds and which will con
nect tne Shenandoah and Great
Smoky National parks.
The sections authorized are from
the Southern boundary of the Shen
andoah park to the James river and
from Aciney Gap, just below Koan
oKt, to Blowing Ko.k, N. C. Secre
tary lckes staled at his press confer.
enee th:it jitter hf returns from his
vacation in the West next month he
win make a personal inspection tour
of proposed routes leading from
Blowing Kock to the Great Smoky
-Mountains National park. He fur
ther stated that proponents of . the
suggested route will oe. given an op
ponunity to express their views at
Hearings he hinusell' will conduct.

Denieray said the states had to
obtain right of way for a greJt por.
fion of the jiarkw..y tint he did riot
anticipate any extended delay in this
u-gard. He said the secietary was
insisting on a one thousand feet rigid
of way wlH'.ever possible. .Much"!
the parkway will go through govern

of way is merely a matter of detail
which can be completed within a few
days. Under the . agreement -'the
states must : jui chase all l ight, , of

Decision ('f Secretary lckes to make
a personal inspection tour of the pro
posed parkway routes, on the South

North Carolina. It is reliably re
ported that the special survey com

Local Potato Seed
.Being Used Now In
'' "Excellent crops -. of early Irish poL

i'iedmont section from seed grown in
the mountains of western North
Climatic conditions in the moun

duce seed equal ' in quality'" to' that
coming from Maine and "other "--seed
producing areas of the North and
West savs II. K. Niswonger. exten
sion horticulturist at State College.
For the past 10 years the extension
service has been encouraging the pro
duction of seed potatoes in the moun
tain . counties. So far the Irish
cobb r has proved the most - popular,
though other varieties are also in de
mand. Tin- year the extension service, in
co-operation'- with-' the Carolina Moun
tain Co-operative anil, the Tennessee
Valley Authority helped in placing
T.abO bushels of certified Maine seed
among 75 farmers.- Between .20,000
and , 25,000 bushels of seed potatoes
should be harvested from this plant
ing, Niswonger e-timated-
The potato plants in this . project
have passed inspection. Later, the
potatoes will be inspected ny the X.
C. Crop Improvement Assik lation and
certified unless traces of disease are
found. No diseased potato will "be
approved for seed purposes '
Niswonger said that, tne western
Carolina seed is : ideal for u-e by
growers in the extreme eastern
counties, but at present the high
freight rates make it diflicuU for
mountain farmers to compete with
seed growers in Maine who tan ship
their seed by water. (
However, extensive . shipmentts of
mountain seed into the Piedmont sec
tion have been made yearly and the
seed is growing in favor by all who
use it- Niswonger added..
